About Me

Hello. I’m Mat. I Do The Explores.

I enjoy wandering around abandoned old asylums, prisons, military bases, mines, collieries, hospitals and everything in between whilst dodging metal thieves, the local walking dead and rabid pigeons scaring me half to death in dark basements.  I have been snooping around old places I probably shouldn’t for decades but only in the last few years started documenting my explores with photography.

My Dora the explorer backpack contains nothing more than a torch and a Fuji X100f… I don’t ever create entrances, take anything or cause any damage.

I have a Flickr Page [Click here] please feel free to add me and I will add you back, I live right on the boarder of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and its always good to link up with local people of a similar interest.



Feel free to get in touch and say hello…
